“It ain’t the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
It is sad to listen to so many of the youth, and entrepreneurs, of today, who basically claim that they can’t compete in today’s economy or marketplace because they just don’t have what it takes to make it. They look at the circumstances around them as giants, and virtually give up without even going into battle, never considering today’s point: “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog!”
What those of us with experience in the business world, and life in general, need to do is impress upon others the fact that if you want it bad enough you can get it – whatever “it” is. Make no doubt about it, the task/struggle won’t be easy. You are going to have to fight, sometimes tenaciously, but anything worth having is worth fighting for. Precious few of us ever have anything given to us. Rather, we must go out and get it. And, we cannot allow the giants that seem to stand in our way stop us. So, if you are hoping to achieve a particular status; master certain tasks or rise to the level of success you are hoping for, do a little introspection and determine just how much fight you have in you!
